Enamored with Glass - part #7

Glass jars photographed at the Lourve in Paris, France.

Glass can be functional and beautiful all at the same time.
It is amazing that such gorgeous pieces of glass have survived
for a very long time and then sit in all their
splendor for us to enjoy in the museum.

I wonder what they held?
A vessel is for holding many different things.
I am imagining exotic oils for bathing.
What do you think?
Wouldn't it be lovely to have a beautiful glass vessel
sitting by the bathtub holding something that smells
divine? It sets my mind to dreaming.

Have a glorious day~
